Take a dip and help charity

Have your say

CANCER charity fundraisers are urging swimmers to sign up for an event in Rotherham.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is taking its annual Swimathon campaign to Rotherham Leisure Complex from April 26 to 28, and locals are being encouraged to get involved.

Participants can choose from one-and-a-half, two-and-a-half, or five kilometre challenges, individually or in teams.

The event is open to swimmers of all ages and abilities.

Community fundraiser Rebecca Turner said: “It’s a great way to get fit this spring as well as raising money.”

Registration is open until April 24. Visit www.swimathon.org to sign up.
